Cropton Cabins Holiday Park
Cropton, Wrelton, YO18 8ES
Join Astronomer Richard Darn for a fabulous voyage through the Universe along with stargazing experts who will bring along powerful telescopes and space rocks four billion years old!
Cropton Forest is one of the darkest spots in the North York Moors so prepare to be wowed by the sight of thousands of stars, sparkling clusters and distant galaxies.
There’ll also be a colourful beginner’s talk indoors and chance to get the measure of the solar system using a toilet roll!
Suitable for adults and children over six years old. Goes ahead whatever the weather.
